Hamilton County Commissioners reorganized Monday with Chris Monzel assuming the presidency.
Monzel says he plans to stay the course laid out by fellow commissioner Greg Hartmann.
"Definitely public safety is the number one priority for Hamilton County. And it's something that's important and especially with the new Sheriff coming on board of what the public safety needs are. So that's number one, that's always been the number one priority to me in government," he says.
An endangered Brazilian ocelot kitten is the latest birth at the Cincinnati Zoo and Botanical Garden.
A release from the zoo says the kitten was born New Year's Eve after an artificial insemination from the zoo's resident male ocelot, "Monsieur." This birth represents the fifth pregnancy worldwide in ocelots resulting from artificial insemination.
Both the mother, Sala and the kitten are currently being housed in a quiet off-exhibit location but likely will be transferred to the ocelot exhibit in the Zoo’s Night Hunters building later this spring for public viewing.
A new Cincinnati Children's Hospital survey finds one-third of teen girls actually have an in-person meeting with somebody they met online.
Psychologist Jennie Noll says abused or neglected teenage girls are more likely to present themselves in a more sexually provocative way online and therefore have more offline meetings. Noll studied the Internet and social media habits of 250 girls. About half were abused. She followed up a year later. Noll says the meeting part is scary for this age even though plenty of adults do it.
